Urban Trails

Denver offers more than 80 miles of off-street multi-use trails within the City. Most of the trails follow Denver’s urban waterways and offer safe and scenic routes through our urban neighborhoods. These off-street trails provide recreational opportunities for walking, running, cycling, and skating. In addition, they serve to supplement to the on-street grid bicycle route system throughout the City.
